This is our great pleasure to share with you that Bangladesh Community Association of Nova Scotia has been engaged in
a community-based working group to support the collection of race-based data in the health system. Please find the Government news release on this initiative at: https://novascotia.ca/news/release/?id=20210414003 

On September 12, 2021, BDCANS Working Group has launched community engagements sessions for greater awareness and affirmative actions toward race-based health data collection initiative by the Government of Nova Scotia to identify and remove racism and discrimination in the healthcare system in the province. BDCANS will organize different community engagement sessions and focus group discussions within Bangladeshi community as well as with other communities.
